The aim of this case study was to identify and analyse policy, procedures and risk assessment within a public leisure centre. To further this aim, a number of specific research objectives were identified; i. Identification of the methods used for risk rating and analysing the organisations approach to risk assessment ii. Critically appraise the implementation of risk control systems iii. Identify areas of good practises and suggest areas for improvement. The study was conducted at Llantrisant Leisure Centre, Rhondda Cynon Taff. Interview subjects (n=4) were identified to represent a range of job roles, responsibilities and functions. The study focused on their experiences of health and safety management at Llantrisant Leisure Centre. All participants completed a semi-structured interview. Transcripts of the interviews were created and the subsequent analysis found that Llantrisant Leisure Centre adhered to advice given by the Health and Safety Executive, legislation and regulation such as the Health and Safety at Work Act (1974) and the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations (1999). Llantrisant Leisure Centre’s areas of good practice were staff training and risk assessment, in particular COSHH assessment. Areas for improvement include, staff supervision - to ensure that staff are working in accordance with training and instructions. The employer should also use the feedback from supervision to retrain, or discipline members of staff whom are found to not be acting in accordance with training and instructions.
